"HI" & Where can you buy hedging trees in or around Varna

Postby Meadow Rise Yunets » Fri May 05, 2017 7:08 pm

Hi ALL

Just signed up to the forum and own a home in Yunets which is a village just off Black Sea Coast not far from Byala.

I now looking to create a screen hedge around parts of my property and could do with some advice on what type of trees would create good thick screening that could gain a height of around 6ft (2 mtrs).

Any help advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks

I recommend using cherry laurel (Prunus laurocerasus) - it's evergreen, retaining its lustre throughout the coldest winter and hottest summer, is reasonably fast growing and is indigenous to the Black Sea area. Most garden centres will stock shrubs that should be planted about 1m apart to create a nice looking hedge.

we bought leylandii from goldenpages and only 6lv each, as said avoid Boxwood as caterpillars will strip them like they did to ours.
